The place and location are great, the hosts are super nice too. Oh, and the food is awesome, mainly the breakfast. The french toast and pancakes and the homemade syrup were my favorite. So 5 stars overall. The only one that gets 1 star only is the sloth on the tree that didn't bother to move during our whole stay...

It is an amazing place, quiet, with beautiful details and a very nice owner Monique! Plus the really wonderful surrounding (several beaches meet the jungle) makes this place really special! We definitely recommend!!!

I have been traveling South America for a year and haven't found anything nearly as special as this place. The hostel is clean, beautifully decorated and really gives you a homey cabin feel. Not to mention that it's right on an actual beach which is hard to come across in Bocas. But the thing I was most impressed by was...

This place was exactly what I wanted. Such a great set up! The restaurant patio was amazing! I could sit there all day and watch the waves. The managers were so helpful with anything you needed, we really had no plans going there and they were full of great options. I loved that you could have all your meals there....

Tesoro Escondido lives up to its name! My Wife and I were on Honeymoon and immediately fell in love with the location, Food and relaxed atmosphere. The Cabinas are situated on the seafront and the edge of the rainforest for an authentic tropical island feel. The food is home cooked and dinner changes everyday. Monique Jane and Maxi went out...

Well, if you desire to stay somewhere pretty secluded with good views then by all means try this place. It's kind of like a big tree house. That being said, the place is 4 miles from town which may not sound like a lot but a taxi to and from town is 15 dollars EACH way. Also, I feel as...

Gorgeous eco-lodge tucked into the jungle of Panama! You are steps from the beach, but also surrounded by lush forest. The first time we stayed here we say sloths in the trees directly overlooking the outdoor patio! This is a very unique and wonderful experience. However, this is not a luxury hotel, with steamed towels. Look at the hotels website...

There are so many photos already posted on the internet, but they do not transmit the beauty of the place, and the friendliness of the staff. Very hospital, knowledgeable, friendly. The food was really good, and we definitely recommend to sign up for meals. Tesoro lodge has bicycles for rent, if you want to discover the island on your own,...
